Checkerboard Bread Box

First, I have to apologize to all the English Majors out there that might be critiquing the spelling here. Is it two words for both "checkerboard" and "bread box"? I figured one for the word "checkerboard" because it describes a pattern, and two words for the box as Bread describes the box. LOL! Whatev...

It is that time of year where as a mom, you have spent a lot of time focusing on your children and other people. Christmas decorating, shopping, and the regular stuff we do. If you are like me, you are craving to do something for you or your home but cannot put a lot of time and effort into it. So I bring you this very small Breadbox redo.

Navigating the Negativity

When I posted my most recent post about my Acceptance Letter and new About Me page, it was with a huge internal battle, and a lot of prompting from trusted friends. I knew that if I chose to go down that road there were going to be a lot of haters out there. There would be people to judge me for talking openly about my story. These people would range from those I thought to be friends, or women in my situation that choose to just accept their spouses activities, people that are ignorant to the life of a partner of an addict, and finally either addicts themselves. Let's face it, the guilty take the truth to be hard. The question for myself and one I had for others was how do I get through this part of telling my story and not let it affect me?
